Marine Weather and Tides
Cocoa West, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

However, increasing moisture will bring a return to offshore moving storms in the afternoon and evening by late week.
Gulf stream hazards..None.

Update
A tight moisture gradient residing across east central florida
will make for a challenging pop forecast, particularly along and
to the north of the interstate 4 corridor. Currently, the area
resides in a relatively weak pressure pattern between surface
ridging near lake okeechobee and a surface trough over north
florida. Convection is off to an early start this morning over the
nature coast where weak surface convergence between the two
features is combining with deeper moisture. Both the hrrr and
local WRF show this activity diminishing before showers and
isolated storms start to develop along the i-4 corridor later this
afternoon. More rigorous boundary collisions, aided by the east
coast sea breeze, should lead to the greatest coverage late this
afternoon and toward sunset. Still, despite the increase in
coverage compared to recent days, mid-level ridging will keep a
lid on the convections intensity, with lightning, wind gusts of 30
to 40 mph and brief heavy rainfall being the primary threats.

With that in mind, will carry 40-50% along the interstate 4
corridor, tapering to 10% across the space and treasure coasts
where rain-free conditions are expected.

The strongest solar insolation of the year (summer solstice occurs
Thursday morning at 6:07 am) and mainly cloud-free conditions
will allow temps to warm quickly this morning, reaching 91-93f
most locations away from the coast before showers provide some
relief over the interior. Temps will be several degrees higher
than in recent days along the coast, particularly north of
melbourne, where light westerly flow will delay the sea breeze
this afternoon.

Aviation
Chances for afternoon and early evening thunderstorms return to
the forecast today along and north of the interstate 4 corridor
(kdab-ksfb-kmco-kism-klee) as moisture deepens compared to the
past several days. Best coverage should hold until mid to late
afternoon, so vcts beginning 19-20z should suffice. Dry air will
keep thingsVFR and rain-free from ktix south.

Marine
Today-tonight... Ridge axis shifts south of the area today, with a
light to gentle S SW breeze becoming S SE into the afternoon and
increasing up to 10-15 knots as sea breeze forms and shifts
inland. Winds will then veer to the SW into tonight, becoming 5-10
knots nearshore and remaining up to 10-15 knots offshore. Seas
will range from 1-2 feet nearshore and up to 2-3 feet offshore.

A few storms may push offshore of coastal areas north of the cape
this afternoon and early evening producing brief gusty winds.

Otherwise, greatest convective coverage should remain across inland
areas.

Hydrology
The st johns river above lake harney near geneva is forecast to
remain above action stage and below flood stage as it levels out
through late this week and into the weekend.
